Good Food / Bad Food

An interdisciplinary two-day conference to be held at the University of
Kent, July 10-12, 2008

We invite proposals for papers from scholars in literature, history,
anthropology, art history, sociology, cultural, media and film studies,
and other related fields. We would also welcome contributions from
professionals in the field of food writing, restaurant reviewing and the
like. We hope that this conference might lead to the establishment of a
more or less formal network of people working on and in food writing, and
we plan an edited volume showcasing the most exciting work in the field.

Subjects might include the following:

• Food in Fiction
• Snacks
• Poisoning
• Nutritional advice
• Restaurant reviews
• Table manners
• Disgust
• Indulgence
• Junk Food
• Modes of production/morality (Fair trade, organics, GM)
• Hunger
• Eating dangerously
• Travel
• The Alimentary

Abstracts of 300 words maximum to the organisers by March 1st, 2008.

Organisers: Dr Nicki Humble, Roehampton University and Dr Sarah Moss,
University of Kent.;
